Love and women are the themes of 30 Năm Tình Ca Quốc Bảo (30 Years of Love Songs by Quoc Bao), a production issued in digital CD and vinyl.

The album marks the artist’s 30-year career. It features nine hit songs that shot him to fame. 

Highlighted songs are Em Về Tinh Khôi (My Lovely Girl) released in 1997, Giấc Mơ Tuyết Trắng (Dream about Snow) in 2000 and Bình Yên (Peaceful) in 2003. 

Bao worked with his staff, including music producer Bao Chan and pop stars Ha Tran and Bang Kieu, and singers Nguyen Ha and Le Hieu, to remix and record the songs in new styles. 

“The music in the album truly reflects my life and love,” said 54-year-old Bao in an interview with local media during the album launch in the city last week. 

“My music comes from my heart,” he added.

Bao will soon release a music book of 100 songs. The book will also come with sheet music and photos featuring pop stars who performed the musician’s songs.  

Bao began his career in 1989 when he worked as a music teacher at the HCM City College of Pedagogy. 

In 1995, he worked as a music editor for the Phuong Nam Studio, one of the region’s leading film companies. He was responsible for compiling, editing and syncing music for many films’ soundtracks. 

He became well known in 1997 after his first hit, Em Về Tinh Khôi, a romantic jazz song performed by young pop idol Ha Tran. The song later was included in many albums recorded by top singers at home and aboard.

Bao’s creative ability is to mix different musical genres. His music combines traditional and western styles, using Vietnamese folk elements.

He has composed more than 1,000 songs and released 13 albums, all of them performed by pop stars like Ha Tran, My Tam, Ho Ngoc Ha and Thuy Tien.
